Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

4.3
Louis Latour, a prestigious name in Burgundy for over two hundred years, was established in 1797. A winemaking family in Aloxe-Corton for centuries, they patiently built their vineyards to around fifty hectares, 29 hectares of which are classified as Grands Crus in the Côtes d'Or. The estate spans from Côte de Beaune to Côte de Nuits and includes the Château Corton Grancey and cellars dating back to 1834. Currently led by Louis-Fabrice Latour in the seventh generation, the majority of Domaine Louis Latour's vineyards are located in Aloxe-Corton. The harvest, usually in mid-September, is done entirely by hand based on grape ripeness and health. The red wines are traditionally vinified and aged in the historic Cuvee of Corton Grancey, with only the best grapes selected for fermentation in oak barrels. After approximately 12 months of aging, the wine is stored in the cellar for additional months before being offered for sale.
